Does Your Clutch Need Fixing? There Are 3 Ways To Tell

Cars with manual transmissions can be so much fun to drive, and they tend to have better fuel economy too. But with the perks of a manual also come a few more things that you should be aware of while driving and maintaining your vehicle. Many manual cars will encounter clutch issues at some point, so it is important to know how to spot them before serious damage occurs. Thankfully, there are a few red flags that you can watch out for on your own.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, give us a call to schedule a transmission inspection in Houston:

1. Burning smell

If you have noticed a strong smell that is like burning rubber, especially if that smell is accompanied by smoke from under the hood, your clutch may be in trouble. This can occur when you've got too much wear and tear on your clutch, possibly from riding your clutch during traffic.

2. Shaking while shifting

If your car shakes or shimmies while you are shifting gears, it may be time to see a mechanic. This symptom can often show up in reverse and first gear, and you may feel like the clutch isn’t engaging smoothly, resulting in jerking or shaking.

3. Slipping out of gear

If you notice that your car "slips" out of the gear you put it in, especially when accelerating or going up hills, it means your clutch is getting worn down. This may happen over time, and means you’re due for a replacement.
